By PATRICK HALL, The Wilson Post
MT. JULIET -- Students went home early from W.A. Wright Elementary School in Mt. Juliet Tuesday afternoon due to a water line breaking shortly after noon, threatening to close the school again Wednesday, but classes will be in session as scheduled.

Mickey Hall, deputy director of Wilson County Schools, said there was a pressure problem with the schools water line which forced the early dismissal.

Buses were dispatched to the school around 1:15 p.m., while other parents had to pick up their children early.

Parents were very understanding, and the bus drivers did their usual good job. Everything went well, Hall said.

The leak was repaired Tuesday afternoon and Hall said everything will run on schedule at the school today. There was no damage to the school building itself or any of the schools other infrastructure due to the leak.
